Paula Creamer sank a 75-foot eagle putt on the second playoff hole against Azahara Munoz to win the HSBC Women’s Champions on Sunday for her first LPGA title since the 2010 U.S. Women’s Open.
Creamer’s putt curled across the 18th green and then rolled slowly down the slope and directly into the hole. She ran across the green, then fell to her knees and put her head on the ground, laughing and pounding the grass.
“It’s one of those putts where if you just get it in the right spot, it’s going to fall down,” she said. “But I could stand there all day long and putt that and I don’t think get it within six, seven feet.”

Tiger Woods hit balls from Europe into Asia on Tuesday when half of the six-lane Bosphorus Bridge was closed for the world’s top-ranked golfer.
In a publicity stunt for this week’s Turkish Open, Woods stood on a makeshift tee and launched drives along the world’s fourth longest suspension bridge, which spans 5,118 feet and is 210 feet above the Bosphorus River.
Woods said: “To be the first golfer to do this was very cool.” (Photos: David Cannon/Getty Images, Bulent Kilic/AFP/Getty Images)

Jim Furyk put his 59 behind him with a round that was 10 shots higher Saturday in the BMW Championship. Now all he wants is a trophy.
Furyk recovered from a sluggish start with three birdies in a five-hole stretch around the turn. A three-putt bogey from 30 feet on the par-5 18th forced him to settle for a 2-under 69 and a one-shot lead over Steve Stricker.
It was a far different finish from Friday, when Furyk hit a wedge to three feet for birdie on his final hole (No. 9) for a 12-under 59, becoming only the sixth player in PGA Tour history to hit golf’s magic number.

They say par is a good score in a major.
If that’s true next week at the PGA Championship, then Tiger Woods has already done his share of preparation.
Woods played safe and smart with a big lead, parring 16 holes in an even-par 70 Sunday to coast to a seven-shot victory at the Bridgestone Invitational for his eighth win at the event — matching the PGA Tour record he already shared for victories in a single tournament.
